Several products from the Infinity Premium acoustic solutions range by Atkar were installed at Trinity College, Melbourne to provide symmetrical acoustic performance along with visual impact.
Located in Parkville, Melbourne, the Trinity College was designed by architecture firm McIldowie Partners, and built by Kane Constructions. The new state-of-the-art precinct at the University of Melbourne incorporates a 300-seat auditorium, five drama rooms, art gallery, music room and classrooms over three levels.
The exceptional design of the interiors features a combination of perforated and solid triangular timber panels creating a symmetrical wave-like contrast ripple in warm tones. Custom folded 3D ceiling panels wrapping down onto the walls and flowing from the entrance and into the auditorium provide optimum acoustic performance with a simultaneous visual impact.
The Blackwood veneer leaves were handpicked by McIldowie Partners and applied in a mismatched style to the panels. The architects were confident that Atkar would be able to deliver on expectations, with the two firms collaborating on the design.
Atkar produced 3D shop drawings and a half-scale prototype before proceeding with the production. A very impressive result, Atkar is proud to have been part of this achievement which has taken 8 years of planning, design and construction to develop this stunning multipurpose building.
